October 30, 2018, Pueblo, CO – The Food Safety Program at the Pueblo Department of Public Health and Environment is proud to announce the continued growth of the Pueblo Partners in Food Safety program and the newest Partner is Buckshot Bar & Grill.

“We are excited to welcome Buckshot Bar & Grill as the newest Partner to this elite program,” stated Sylvia Proud, public health director at the Pueblo Department of Public Health and Environment.

All restaurants are encouraged to apply; assistance is available with resources for program enrollment, self-assessments, and safe food handler training.”

The Health Department’s Pueblo Partners in Food Safety recognizes local restaurants with exceptional food safety practices, protocols, and health reports. The program launched in April 2015 with six facilities and has since grown to 84.

“The Pueblo Partners in Food Safety not only recognizes and promotes restaurants and food facilities but is also a tool to develop Active Managerial Control, a system to ensure steps for safe food handling are being followed,” explained Vicki Carlton, food safety program manager at the Pueblo Department of Public Health and Environment. Carlton added, “Active Managerial Control empowers food handlers to reduce risks and ensure operations remain safe.”

Participating facilities conduct a self-assessment of practices and apply to join the program. The Pueblo Department of Public Health and Environment reviews and approves applications, allowing Partners to receive an official window decal for their place of business, a certificate of approval, and public recognition on The Dish of Pueblo website.
